Why Am I Here? Page Updated

I've just done a quick wee updated to my Why Am I Here? page to bring it more up to date! (see tabs long the top of the page!)

This week the May issue of Company magazine was released and it contains a wee 2 page feature on my blog! The issue is only £1 this month and my feature can be found on page 79/80. I've been so excited about it for the last two months! I had good fun writing it and it's pretty cool seeing my little picture in a magazine!! As usual I wrote too much and it would obviously need to be edited - I'll post the full, unedited, Stella version later today or tomorrow.

I should add though that it has been heavily edited! You might notice that my Why Am I Here? is rather different to the reason in the mag - something about an article about food diaries, I've never read this article and have no idea what it is! Also my chicken chow mein was not "a bit of a treat tonight" - it was a healthy home made version, my post is here and the original recipe is here. Oh and I don't drink entire bottles of wine just because "it is Saturday after all" - it was shared with my friend, nor do I drink 3 gin and slimline tonics with my dinner mid-week. I don't even like gin and tonic, tonic is too bitter and gin makes my nose itch! I don't drink alcohol a lot when I'm trying to lose weight, and I'm more of a wine of cocktail kind of girl than a gin and tonic kind of girl! And! Most importantly, Chocolate Covered Katie is the creator of Fudge Babies!! I credited her loads and put her in my favourite sites - I read her blog every day!

But other than that, it's a cool feature and I'm pretty excited about it!

Off for a run now - the 5k Run Balmoral is next weekend! And my Just Giving page can be found here! Thank you again to everyone who has sponsored me and donated to Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland!


  1. Hello lovely, I nipped to the shop earlier and bought it and I am pretty angry on your behalf at what they have added in and changed around - it's very unfair and not a real likeness of you or your blog.

    However, it is a great feature that shows a lot of variety and cool foods and they gave me a mention - yay!

    I would definitely email them a link to this blog post to let them know you are not best pleased about them editing you quite so much.

    I'm really glad you posted this to show anyone that finds their way to your blog that it isn't what you or your blog are all about.

    I can proudly go around now saying "that's my friend" *points at Crappy in magazine*

    Love ya babes


  2. Yay to being in company magazine! My sister was in last months she had a 3 page feature about her home! x x

  3. Ooh that's pretty cool, I shall go buy it tomorrow! It's a shame you were so heavily edited but at least you have the blog to set the record straight!

  4. My sister bought Company and I saw you in it!! It's a shame they changed so much :( How did you get in, did you approach them?

    I got an email from them just telling me they wanted to feature my blog and what info they'd need from me - I thought it was spam/a wind up at first but looked the girl up and gave her a call, figured I had nothing to lose!

    Thanks Jo!

    I'm really not that bothered now, I was disappointed at first, but the main things that aren't true anyone can see that it's wrong just from following the link to my blog, and people who know me can spot the un-true and wrong bits a mile off!
    I'm pleased they left in a good variety of my foods, shame the sprouted wheat bread became "wheat bread" and I think they took out the spirulina.... anyway!

    My mum said she has managed to resist telling everyone she sees!


  9. Just read it petal, and agree that any one who reads your blog will see you are not a gin soaked ingrate! :D

    Really cool having a friend who is a published writer though!

    Well done sweetie xx

  10. [...] and wanted to feature her in a piece about keeping an online food diary.  Though she has been very heavily edited, the article is a fun read and shows what a fabulous range of delicious foods she eats and proves [...]

  11. Just saw you in the magazine too! It's really weird how much they've edited though after reading your own version. I wonder if they mistook "a few green teas" for a few g&t's?! well done though it's a really good feature!

    Hi Laura! Yeah maybe I just mis-typed ;) Thank you :)
